Dr. Akhtar performed total hip replacement 16 days ago. He is a wonderful surgeon. I am already walking without a walker or cane and virtually in no pain. He listens to what I have to say and answers any questions I have. He is also going to do a total knee replacement in a couple of months. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

I have been seeing Dr Akhtar since Sept. 2016 and he is the most amazing Dr. I have ever met. He cares about his patients, is very professional, knowledgeable, and takes the time to explain everything. He is very ethical and expects the same os his team. He refers you only to providers who provide the same quality of service he provides. I will always refer him. Good job Dr. Akhtar.
in Austin, TX |
I saw Dr. Akhtar for a second opinion on the need for hip surgery. Dr. Akhtar spent time to thoroughly review the results of the xray and MRI (which the first doctor did not do), explained what was causing my discomfort and a plan which did not require surgery! I was so impressed with his care and his way of communicating what was going on. I highly recommend him!!
in Austin, TX |
Excellent, caring surgeon. Had total hip replacement and went back to work in 6 weeks. No complications.
in La Grange, TX |
Excellent doctor! Absolutely amazing in every aspect and just what you would want and expect when picking a surgeon for total hip replacement. 6 wks pre op and everything is great and I'm back to work all ready. Dr Akhtar is just a all around good doctor from first visit till last we have just loved the whole experience. I really liked when he stuck his head in on first visit to tell us he's running a few minutes behind and apologized and also calling night before surgery to see if I had ????
in Lometa,TX |
He did an outstanding job on my knee replacement. I am pain free and movement is normal. He is kind, gentle and listens to what you have to say. He is concerned about his patiences. I have recommended him highly.
in Austin, TX |
I had a total hip arthroplasty (posterior technique) and cannot say enough good things about Dr. Akhtar, from his wonderful bedside manner, timeliness of meeting his schedule, skillful surgical technique and his post operative bedside manner--all were perfect in my view. My recovery is weeks ahead of schedule. I was up and walking well within three days and not even using a cane or walker at all within a week. I had no significant pain after the first week and was off pain meds after 10 days.
in Round Rock, TX |
Would recommended Dr. Akhtar to family and friends.
in Pflugerville, TX |
My experience with Dr. Akhtar was outstanding. He is patient with questions, knowledgeable, truthful, compassionate, and an excellent surgeon.
in Calabash nc |
Dr. Akhtar replaced both of my hips a few years ago. Even with a complication with #2 that could not have been foreseen I was very happy with the entire experience. He is a knowledgeable and caring physician.
